Why IBM tape drives?

IBM offers a full range of tape drives with the performance and capacity for midrange to high-end storage with low cost of ownership.

Modern tape is well known to have the lowest cost of ownership among all digital storage, but tape’s real advantage is high performance streaming with extreme capacity. Beyond performance, tape offers a high level of reliability and availability for long-term storage.
